Woman acquitted of assault charges


A Kubwa Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, yesterday discharged a 24-year-old woman, Favour Nwaneri, accused of inflicting injuries on one Jennifer Agusi.
The Judge, Mohammed Marafa, discharged Nwaneri, following application by the complainant to withdraw the case, while the prosecution Counsel, Ikem Uchegbulam, also made an oral application to that effect.
Marafa granted the application relying on Section 355 of the Administration of the Criminal Justice Act (ACJA).
Nwaneri of Dutse Alhaji, Abuja, was docked on a charge of causing grievous hurt, an offence she denied committing.
She was said to have acted in a violent manner without any provocation and inflicted deep cuts on the complainant with a razor blade on January 28, 2018.
The complainant, who sustained injuries on her hand and leg, was reportedly taken to General Hospital, Kubwa, where she spent N37,000 for treatment.
